Puffin Nesting Webcam

Puffin Webcam

Puffins, murres and guillemots are all members of the alcid family. Alcids, also known as auks, are pelagic seabirds that spend much of their time out on the ocean, in some cases returning to shore only to breed and nest. In this habitat you may see horned puffins, tufted puffins, pigeon guillemots and common murres.

Seabird Facts:

  • Alcids feed by diving under the water after fish and other prey.
  • These birds are often compared to penguins because of their aquatic lifestyle, but there are some major differences:
      • Penguins cannot fly, while Alcids can.
      • Penguins live in the Southern Hemisphere, Alcids in the Northern Hemisphere.
